Last resort on this board, wasted 30+ minutes on 2 call centre calls, bounced round 3 departments. Finally get a guy who might understand, puts me on hold, and after 2 minutes I get put back on original queue, and nobody responds after 10 minutes.
Anywhere TV listings ( http://anywhere.virginmedia.com/tv-listings/ )showing "To Be Announced" for many terrestrial channels, BBC 1,2,4, HD, ITV1,2,3,HD, all 3 of them+1, and many more including all the channel 4 and 5 variants, e.g. More4, right up to channel 203 47HD.
This all Saturday 12/8/17 evening.
Update, looking ahead to set advance sky cinema premiere HD recordings for the next fortnight, I find that it just shows "Movie" for 22/8 0725 onwards, and "Channel Off Air" for ALL channels from 23/8 onwards so it looks like Virgin TV is shutting down for good from then. Time to cancel your subscriptions guys! Too late to give a month's notice.
The TV Listing web page is shockingly poor. Regular mistakes, the time goes out by an hour twice a year when the clocks change, you frequently get "unexpected error" when trying to get show information, the listings for the Scottish region frequently end up being for tyhe London region. Whoever looks after it should be ashamed of themselves.
You are quite right about the time shift problem twice a year that doesn't get corrected until a human gets in working weekday hours.
Channel5+1 is often out by many hours, can't understand why they pick on that channel.
You often cannot set advance Tivo recordings on FTA terrestrial channels like ITV1 HD or ITV1, it says you aren't subscribed. Even if you follow VM support advice to reset the Tivo box.
And the one reason that I really liked this service was that on a widescreen monitor you can see more info about the program title than on the TV screen, but most importantly, it only used to show you the channels you were subscribed to, so it was so much faster to navigate than using a VM box, now it even shows you FTA HD channels you can't get on my VM subscription.
